Barbara Rossi MEng MSc PhD MAS

Associate Professor of Engineering Science

Tutorial Fellow of New College

Biography

Barbara received her undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from ULiege in 2003. She then joined ArcelorMittal as a research engineer, where she sought to develop long-span composite floors. Between 2005 and 2009, she performed and defended a PhD in Engineering Science, with a dissertation entitled “Mechanical properties, residual stresses and structural behaviour of thin-walled stainless steel profiles”. Part of her degree was achieved at The University of Sydney and Imperial College London, as a visiting fellow.

Barbara joined the University of Oxford in March 2019 as Associate Professor and Tutorial Fellow in Engineering Science. Prior to being appointed at the University of Oxford, she was an Associate Professor in Engineering Technology at KU Leuven, where she led a research group exploring the structural behaviour of metallic structures.

At the University of Oxford, Barbara established and leads The Sustainable Metal Structures Research Group, focusing on enhancing the sustainability and resilience of metal structures. Advanced analytical and computational analysis are combined with experimental methods to perform both fundamental and applied research. Her team’s research topics include lateral-torsional buckling of stainless steel beams, crevice corrosion-fatigue of duplex steel in open ocean structures, corrosion of welded stainless steel in wastewater treatment plant, corrosion resistance in high-level radioactive waste disposal, fatigue of hybrid structures, behaviour of additively manufactured structures. Her research often involves full-scale experiments on structures under various forces and corrosive environments to assess structural performance, in the Sustainable Metal Structures Laboratory, at Begbroke Science Park.

Over the past two decades, whole-life assessment and sustainability of structures have been central to Barbara’s work. In 2022, Barbara was one of fifty Engineers awarded Carbon Champion status by the Institution of Civil Engineers. A year later the ICE awarded her the Bev Waugh Medal for Productivity and Culture. And a year later, she became a Fellow of the Institution, the highest grade of membership of the Institution.

In the last five years, Barbara has published over 80 papers, 37 in peer-reviewed international journals, and contributed to the revisions of Eurocode 3 Part 1-4 and Eurocode 3 Part 1-9. Barbara is also co-founder of Oxford Sustainability. Her company specializes in carbon accounting and mitigation in the construction sector. Barbara offers consultancy to asset developers, managers, and owners, provides advice to architects and building contractors, aiming at promoting low-carbon and nature-positive projects under a “whole system’s approach”. Embodied carbon mitigation is achieved through leaner designs employing more innovative solutions. Barbara also provides tailored training, and state-of-the-art research evaluating current standards or best practices, to drive sustainable construction practices.

In her free time, Barbara is fond of travelling, especially in Italy given her attachment to her family background. She also likes to design handicrafts incorporating various fabrics, precious metals, and ceramics.

Research Interests

Our research revolves around materials such as ultra-high strength steel, stainless steel, aluminium, or a combination of these, used in structures such as bridges, windmills, radioactive waste disposal facility, or wastewater treatment plants.

Our approach considers structures holistically, with the final objective of reaching a highly efficient design while maintaining an acceptable level of reliability over the whole lifecycle. We strive for a more rational use of the next-generation metals in structures that are built with radically innovative processes.

The topics that are currently studied in my research team involve:

  • Buckling of perforated plates and cross-sections
  • Mechanical behaviour of hybrid carbon-to-stainless steel welded joints under corrosion-fatigue
  • Resistance of I-profile hybrid beams with strong flanges
  • Mechanical behaviour of duplex welded connections in highly corrosive environment for nuclear waste geological storage units
  • Longevity and mechanical behaviour of stainless steels structures in wastewater treatment units
  • Behaviour of wire-arc additive manufactured components when submitted to corrosion-fatigue
  • Effective and sustainable construction project management
  • Effect of corrosion on offshore seaweed cultivation
  • I-profile stainless steel beam-columns
  • Behaviour of I-profile sections with web openings
